Explore McNutt’s Island with Your Best Picnic Partner

Your Adventure begins at The Cooper’s Inn B&B


Shelburne Harbour is a treasure. You’ll understand what we mean when we say ‘escape from the ordinary’. One of the Harbour’s many treasures is McNutt’s Island. It sits at the mouth of the Harbour and provides an interesting hiking experience and lots of history to discover. 


Enjoy a day on the Island with a morning arrival on the MV ‘Brown Eyed Girl.’ Lunch and snacks in your backpack, birds to view, rocks to climb over and perhaps seal sightings or even a whale. Oh yes, the Roseway Lighthouse too! The Brown Eyed Girl will return to pick you up in the late afternoon.
